good sander
I have used this sander occasionally for about a year and it works well . It is light for overhead work(peeling bathroom ceiling) and has good power for a small sander. The only problem I had was when the dust chute clogged withe dust and dog fur. That was my fault,Ishould have swept the floor first. I pulled it part and cleared it. Also , I could only get 36grit belts online. Minor stuff. I recommend this product . It is light, tough(I dropped it a few times with no problem) has good power and is well priced.

Powerful but use with care!

This sander is not for the faint of heart. PLEASE before you go removing material from your grandmother’s bureau, practice on scrap lumber until you are certain that you have control of the sander. It removes a lot of material really fast so be careful. It is the only Craftsman tool in my arsenal that I have a few misgivings. The belt adjustment is finicky in that you get it set and a few minutes later it needs adjusting again or the belt runs off one side or the other. The plastic housing on one side has actually been damaged from this problem. When I am able to keep the belt on straight, it is powerful and aggressive for such a small machine. The problems I have experienced may be due to a dud that I picked up or it might be a design flaw. Then again, the problem could be me so just be wary with this little guy until you are totally familiar with its operation. Although I marked that I would not recommend this sander to a friend, I would break mine out and show him/her how to use it and warn of potential problems with the belt adjustment. Then I would let him/hermake up his/her own mind about getting one.

Received this order on time, item is well made, have used the product on a small end table, has a lot of power and takes off like a rocket. Easy to load and unload the sandpaper belt on the sander and I am a female. This product definitely exceeded my expectations. I would recommend to a friend.

I needed a sander to finish work on three doors and this sander has proved to be very good at getting that work done. Handles very well, and runs very smoothly. Would recommend sincerely.

Small areas only

Belt Sander is good for small jobs only. The speed of the belt is not that fast, taking longer time to sand. The belts wear out quickly. For the price it's not bad, but a palm sander would do just the same.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
